Press conference of Malalai Joya in Kabul, condemning the massacre of over 150 civilians in a U.S raid on the Bala Baluk district of Farah Province in Western Afghanistan


Published 2009



طی کنفرانس مطبوعاتی در کابل به تاریخ ۲۱ ثور ۱۳۸۸ ملالی جویا کشتار غیرنظامیان بوسیله اشغالگران امریکایی و ناتو را شدیدا محکوم کرده و آنرا جنایت جنگی هولناک نامید. او کشتار اخیر در قریه بالابلوک ولایت فراه را قتل عام مردم مظلوم نامید و خواهان کشاندن امریکا به دادگاه بین‌المللی جنایات جنگی شد. او گفت که امریکا باید از افغانستان اخراج شود ورنه مردم علیه آن راهی جز قیام نخواهند داشت. او همچنان دولت مزدور کرزی و پنتاگون را برای کم نشان دادن تعداد قربانیان به باد انتقاد گرفت و گفت با اینکار اینان به زخم های مردم ما نمک می‌پاشند.


On May 11, 2009, Malalai Joya, the suspended member of Afghan parliament and the most famous and outspoken woman in Afghanistan, held a press conference in Kabul and called the U.S. act of civilian killings a war crime which should be prosecuted in the international criminal court. She referred to it as massacre.

She also expressed her disgust that Pentagon and the Afghan puppet government of Hamid Karzai are trying to put the death toll as low as possible. She called it like throwing salt on the wounds of Afghan people that Pentagon announced that the number of casualties is only 12, while Joya presented a list of over 164 civilians, many of them children and women, who have been awfully killed in the bombardment of the U.S. war planes on two villages of Farah.

Joya called the Obama administration the same as that of Bush and said that the new policy of Obama is as tragic for Afghans as it was Bush policy. Surge in the number of troops has already increased civilians casualties.
